Gorgeous cocktails, huge variety, staff are able to recommend drinks to suit your taste. Service was a bit slow to begin with but after pointing it out it improved greatly. Ambience is fabulous and the bar is really cosy.

Fantastic find in the heart of Temple Bar area!!. You enter by ringing the bell of an obscure door and are taken to your table in a room reminiscent to back in the 1920's lit by candlelight!! There are a huge amount of cocktails to choose from (to suit all tastes!!), they are beautifully presented and ours all tasted amazing!! Would highly recommend!!

I went there with two of my friends and our first time there we really enjoyed the place so relaxing! Food was beautiful we enjoyed it and our waitress Annmarie was so well mannered and helpful to us as we not sure which cocktail to pick and Annmarie recommend them to us it helpful to have her on hand. Annmarie attitude was outstanding and she is an asset to Vintage Cocktail bar making us feeling at home with her and the open fire was fab! Thanks to Annmarie making our time there so enjoyable and memorable! Xxx we will be back and definitely recommend VCC to others.

Loved our brunch in VCC, fabulous vintage cocktails and lovely food to go with them. Our server as excellent, she was so attentive and helped us choose cocktails based on our likes... my 2nd one wasn't in the book an it was delicious! Will definitely go back several times. Good for dates, small or big groups. Dark luxurious decor, comfy seats.... we were in no rush to leave!! Highly recommended.

Took the Wife for a special night whilst visiting Dublin. Was taken up to the Terrace whilst table was prepped and was only there 2-3 mins and was seated at a romantic little candlelit corner table and poured a glass of water, we were also given menus to peruse. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We were blown away by every single cocktail we had and the charcuterie board we ordered was very well presented and tasted fantastic. The bill was surprisingly reasonable at the end and we were thanked for our custom upon leaving. Would 100% recommend to any couple/ group of friends looking to escape busy streets outside. Most romantic date we’ve had in 13 years and will be revisiting next time for sure. 5star from us!!!!!!!
Note: we dressed smart but some were dressed casual also.

We were seated at the downstairs bar, and initially had our own dedicated server. The menu is through; I loved reading the history of the cocktails and ordering from specific time periods. As the evening died down, we had the chance to chat with the bartender and order drinks directly from him. He was very informative and even made us a drink off-menu. We returned another day for dinner and were again seated downstairs. The tables were a bit tight, but nothing too worrisome. The food was all excellent. Service was a bit slow, but they were fully booked so it's understandable. I purchased a menu at the end of our experience because I loved the drinks so much!

Service was slow, waiter seemed overworked, they only had one bartender so the drinks took ages. we ordered ginger lemon beef but the ginger lemon sauce was just put on top, so only the first bites tasted awesome, the rest was just deep fried beef.
cocktails didnt taste pretty good, mine was okay but my boyfriends cocktail tasted just watery. its a nice location but the service needs to be improofed

We had to ask for someone to take our order after 20+ mins of waiting! The one waitress they had was polite and knowledgeable and appeared to be very busy, and also appeared to be on her own in a bar with 3 floors! There also only seemed to be one bar man so when you had ordered the cocktails took at least 10 mins to come over. We were there 2.5 hours and only had 4 drinks!

It’s very expensive at €13 per drink. The interior is certainly nicely presented and the staff are pleasant. I booked this in advance of our visit but unfortunately the menu changed in the interim and has no vegetarian options therefore we had no choice but to leave and eat elsewhere. Such a shame as we were really looking forward to this.
